Way too early 2013 depth chart

New, 66 comments

The Broncos just finished off their 2012 campaign and Spring ball is a few months away...but we've got to entertain ourselves somehow, right?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Making predictions about next year's starters is always a dicey proposition, but with the way that Broadway Joe Southwick finished his season, I'm at least a little less apt to put the dreaded "OR" at the QB position. Of course, attrition, injuries, or super-secret suspensions could always throw a wrench in the works here...but come on, I'm not Nostradamus. The below chart is my best guess, and should not be used for gambling purposes. I'm throwing in a few true frosh because a) it's happening, and b) LOI day is still a month away, so I thought I'd jinx things.
